Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty ImagesThe Victoria’s Secret Angels have changed over the years.

While it’s certainly an honour for a model to walk in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, it’s an even bigger honour to become an official Angel.

The designs on the Victoria’s Secret runway have evolved from classic lingerie styles to more elaborate high-fashion concepts – and the Angels have changed quite a bit, too.

Huge stars like Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks have been a part of the Angel lineup in the past. This year also marked an end of an era as Adriana Lima ended her reign as the longest-running Angel in the show’s history.

While there are currently 12 Angels in the lineup, there has been a total of 37 Angels throughout the years. Here’s a look at the earliest Angels to the most recent.
